  • Why I Ride
    • Two years ago, in 2016, I was overwhelmed by the number of my friends and acquaintances who were being diagnosed with cancer. At about the same time I heard about a bike ride to Mandurah and back over 2 days with the aim of raising money for cancer research.

      So, I signed up. Unfortunately, at the time I didn’t have a bike and hadn’t really ridden a bike since I was a child.  Luckily, I found someone to help me buy a bike and coach me (thanks Mel).  That all went well, apart from a few tumbles as I learnt to use cleats, and by then I had the cycling bug. So in 2017 I did lots of rides, mainly charity rides, and I finished off with the ProState Cancer ride form Perth to Margaret River, again over 2 days.

      For various reasons (health, travel, grandchildren) I haven’t done much riding in 2018 but when I saw about the Red Sky Ride I thought “Why not? Double it up to a four day ride, and again raising money for a very good cause.” So here I am, now committed and madly training very hard since I’m coming off an unfit base.
